McDermott, 47, invited ET Canada into the home he shares with 41-year-old Spelling, who has been hospitalized for bronchitis, sinusitis, and pneumonia, for a tell-all exclusive interview.
“I’ve never opened up to anybody on camera before,” confesses the reality star. “I’m not a monster, I’m a human being. And I messed up.”
The no-holds-barred two-part confessional will also cover details of his infidelity, his struggles with sobriety and the current state of his tumultuous marriage.
In an exclusive interview with Radar, Kibsey insisted McDermott’s emotional problems began at a young age. “His mom was quite ill for many years,” Kibsey revealed. “She had diabetes and some other issues.” Together, they contributed to an early death.
“Her passing hit Dean hard,” Kibsey explained. “I think it would hit any family member hard! He was still pretty young: 16, 17. That’s tough.”
“What people do, they’re doing things for a reason,” he continued. “Whether because of your marriage or other issues that push you to do things.”
